Life in the SafeSplash world is amazing, challenging, and fun! I get to spend my days surrounded by children and families who all have the mission of water safety and making sure their little ones can enjoy and be safe in the water. With all of the fun that I get to have, it also comes with a lot of hard work. And because of that, I have to remember to keep a good work and home life balance; Something I definitely have struggled with. However, I am learning to make sure I do have a balance for me. I’m sure a lot of people are in the same boat as me, and when I feel like I am stressing about all of the crazy things I have going on I have to remind myself that I have been working on three big aspects in my life!
#1. Who are Those in My Life that are Important?
Take time to spend time with them and connect. For me, that includes my family, some close friends, and my two German, wirehaired Pointers (not a human mom yet so they are my babies). Making sure that I am connecting with the people that mean the most to me keeps me grounded and content.
#2. Me! Am I Doing Things for Myself?
Am I involved in an activity or something that I really enjoy so that I can make sure I am taking care of myself mentally? This may be a hobby or craft, activity or sport you love! For me, it’s reading and crafting that keep me mentally happy!
#3. My Health! Am I Eating Properly and Keeping Active?
This can sometimes be a struggle when we are all busy and let life get in the way, but I love to use my dogs as an excuse to get out and explore. They have to exercise too right!? So we enjoy hiking, and going to the park, and throwing the ball. I have been working on cooking regularly and being active both at the gym and outdoors. These are the three rules that I try to focus on to make sure I keep a good balance with work and home life. A happy me is more productive at work when I make sure to take care of myself.
What do you do to keep a balanced work and home life with all of the craziness that goes on in your life?
